Why this petition matters

Started by Charles Greaves

Hi my name is Charles and I am a year 5 student at Mercedes College and I am writing this petition for a school project .
I care because I love fish as much as I love fishing but it concerns me the disruptive ways of fishing throwing massive nets into the water whenever I see people fishing like that I am so disappointed so please sign this petition. 

What is overfishing When you fish too mush of the same species until they can’t sustainably produce more fish
Southern blue fin tuna
The southern bluefin tuna is fished for a delicious dish in Japan called sashimi one whole tuna can cost a restaurant about $10,000 because of these high prices fisherman really want that tuna in their net.
 Lots of countries catch bluefin tuna and each year told how much fish they can catch this is called a quota. A quota is a fixed share of something that a person or group is entitled to receive or is bound to contribute.
 In 2008 the Japanese were found guilty of breaking the quota the Japanese denied and denied but the truth don’t lie the Japanese were furious when I researched this I was so sad that the Japanese had disobeyed the rules but at the same time I was happy they were caught this made me think about the poor fish that are getting overfished and that is why I have decided to write this petition.
Here is some action you can take next time you go fishing
1 Catch only what you need
2 Follow local fishing rules
3 Never catch creatures during their breeding season
4 Choose larger fish giving the small ones a chance to breed
5 Don’t destroy animal habitats like coral
6 Don’t use disruptive fishing gear
If you chip in and then tell others one good action could lead to many good actions so I strongly believe that you should sign this petition to STOP OVERFISHING!!!!
